Midweek News – Oct 7


“My humanity is bound up in yours, for we can only be human together.”

-Desmond Tutu

Happy Birthday to Desmond Tutu, who is 89 years old today!

Tutu was a major anti-apartheid activist. He chaired South Africa’s Truth and Reconciliation Commission. He was the 1984 recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.

His justice-seeking is grounded in his Christian faith and in the South African concept of ‘ubuntu’, which Tutu describes as “the ancient spirituality of humanity’s oneness with our Creator, the other and with nature…I am because we are. We are all one.”

While we continue to practice physical distancing, we do so remembering that we are all one.  We are all one global community of God’s human children.

We are not alone. We live in God’s world.

We continue to celebrate our oneness via our weekly Zoom gatherings.

Everyone is welcome to join our weekly check-in and chat, Thursdays at 9 a.m.

Here is the link to the TMUC ZOOM:

Join Zoom Meeting – All are welcome!

We look forward to seeing you again.

Here are a few more quotes from Desmond Tutu:

“Do your little bit of good where you are;
it’s those little bits of good put together
that overwhelm the world.”

“Dear Child of God,
I am sorry to say that suffering is not optional.”

“If you are neutral in situations of injustice,
you have chosen the side of the oppressor.”
